The stories include not only information on the difficulty of each hike and how to reach the summit, but also how each peak was named, its geology, and its human history. You'll find which summits you can drive to and which ones will challenge the most ardent climbers. You'll discover where Butch Cassidy hid from the law and which peaks Native Americans used as 'getaways' from the oppressive summer heat. The authors also share their surprise at finding that the highest peaks in three of Utah's counties were unnamed, and how this oversight led to a Salt Lake Tribune contest that proposed monikers for these nameless mountains. With its detailed maps and easy-to-follow directions, Hiking Utah's Summits will serve hikers, mountain bikers, skiers, Sunday drivers, and armchair naturalists as an entertaining and educational guide to the Beehive State's spectacular high country.
